New Resume-filtering technology means the old Resume rules may no longer apply. Recruiting technology, like the increasingly prevalent applicant tracking system (ATS), is making it easier and faster for job-seekers to find and apply to their ideal employment opportunities.
Talent acquisition professionals also appreciate the multiple benefits of an ATS, one of which is reducing the burden of reading hundreds, if not thousands, of résumés to find the right candidate for a position.
The real culprit for the so-called “black hole” of applicant screening technology isn’t the ATS itself, but rather outdated rules for creating a résumé.
It’s time for a real paradigm shift in how we tell job-seekers to write their résumés—rules that will help candidates and opportunities connect in more powerful, easier ways.
As more employers use ATSs, it’s vital for candidates to upgrade their resumes to help ensure they don’t get overlooked.
Resumes should now be optimized to stand out to an ATS, not just to a recruiter or hiring manager.
